Painting project

Before I can redesign my room I have to peel off all the purple and black paint, scrub off the white primer, sand off a lot of the silver oil based paint, then wash it with some grease fighting cleaner such as dish soap or white vinegar. Lesson learned the hard way! NEVER EVER! paint with oil base paint unless it's your floors. It doesn't work in the sun so it's not good for outdoors and you can't paint over it again with any other paint such as latex or acrylic.

But I can't wait to be done so I can paint my walls back to white! My plans are to paint all of my room white and since I still have some left over pink, orange, green, and blue I'd like to paint my room those colors in a very creative way for me and my baby on the way :) <3

Smudging lighter case

These are some smudging lighter cases my grandma made for our upcoming family reunion. Which should be exciting since we have family all over British Columbia and I don't know a lot of them, be nice to meet my family and get to know them.

I took these photos in my backyard when I was smudging with sage grown from my garden. It was super relaxing!

First Nation Fine Arts

Over half the year is done and after finding out about my pregnancy I just couldn't do it anymore. The morning sickness, migraines, and stressed were just too much for me. Also the awkward silence that happened in class and the new alone feeling I had with my classmates I couldn't handle. Also the fact that the father of my baby would never talk to me and turned a guy I thought was my friend against me didn't help too much either. At the time I really couldn't find my inner strength to overcome all the things that was bringing me down. So for the sake of my emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health I left the class. I'm hoping in two years I will be able to go back since my baby will be one years old and able to be in day care while I'm in class. I'm not a huge fan of quitting so the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art is on my list of things I must do.
